  1. Jammed drivers door latch

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi. I just drove my 159 and everything seemed to be fine... until... I parked and tried to get out of the car and the door wouldn't open. I thought that it's probably just the inside handle that won't work, so I opened the window and tried to open it from outside, but nothing happens. I managed...
  2. Remove door card

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi ! I'm looking for removing my rear-right door card. I removed the 3 bolts as explained in video we can find on YouTube. Now I "just have" to pull for uncliping the door panel, but no way ! I used specific plastic tools, try a metalic clips degrapher, but no ! Clips are very very very...
  3. 2003 156SW rear exterior door handle - fighting to replace it

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've just replaced a damaged pin on one of the plastic rear door handles on my 156SW 20v and have seen posts here saying it's an easy job to fit these units. I have to say that's not been my experience at all, the (literal) sticking-point being that the unit sits under the big, thick rubber...
  4. Snapped door handle

    Alfa Giulietta
    Never had this happen to me before in any car I have owned but my door handle has just snapped. I never use force so not sure whats happened. Looked online and there around £40 but are aftermarket and something about plastic welds need drilling out to make them fit? :titanic: Better to look at...
  5. Garage door telltale?

    The Technology Section
    I seem to have a repeated issue with leaving our garage door open overnight. Luckily we're in a quiet cul-de-sac so it's never resulted in anything being stolen, but I'd still rather stop it happening. I'm thinking that if I could get a small light by the front door which lights up when the...
  6. Faulty door Lock

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    As mentioned elsewhere I've acquired a 2nd '01 TS Spider. Not planning to do to much with it at the moment, just make sure she's road legal and drive-able. Main issue at the moment is the fact that the passenger side door lock appears to be broken. It won't catch. I've taken the door card off...

  9. Nasty whistle above 80km/h from the passenger door?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Howdy guys! I'm having a really nasty wind whistle at 80+ km/h, at lower speeds I don't hear anything. The car is LHD if that matters, there's no water or wind coming through the seals, windows are closed shut, I've done the up+down+hold for 10 seconds calibration = same stuff. I do suspect...

    My Giuliettas sprung a leak and I cant figure out how the water is getting in and making its way to where it ends up. Its been back to the dealership who replaced the outer door/window seal but it hasnt helped so was wondering if anyone here might have the answer before I go back to the...
  11. Alfetta GT / GTV6 door seals

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I've searched the forum, but nothing about this is in the history. I think I need new door seals on the Allfetta GT, since I can now actually see the water dripping from the door. My first instinct is to call Highwood, but based on the quality of the speedo cable I last got, I though I would ask...
  12. Brera door possible terrible error!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi Everyone, Following another guide tightening up the guide rails for the drivers window I noticed 2 of the door lock screws / bolts were missing that hold the lock in place where it hits the striker plate. I replaced them with ones I had lying around. I noticed the lower one went in with the...

  16. Rear door wont lock-unlock by remote and key

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, The problem was with the high temperatures because my car was standing in the sun. In the evening, when the sheet cooled, it functioned for a while, and when it didn't, I was able to access the back door with diagnostics and solve the problem. Now I can't do it anymore. With the controls on...
  17. Loose connection in door connector

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi guys Bought a 3.0 1996 recently and I’m going through all the quirks and faults that a car this old obviously has. The electric window on driver side (lhd) didn’t work so I bought a second hand motor which didn’t fit because my car is older. Nevertheless I checked the connector again just to...
  18. 147 door adjustment

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, has anyone adjusted a door on a 147 or a gt? (they look like a similar door, unsure if the procedure is the same) My GTA's offside door rubs somewhere when it goes inside the wing when opened, it must be literally 2 or 3mm too far in towards the wing, I just want to bring it back towards the...

  20. Exterior Door Handle Lock Loose

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, My Giulietta (2011) has always (whilst I have owned it) had a loose exterior door lock. It appears that the garage I bought it from a couple of years ago glued it to the door and the glue has stopped working. The handle and lock work s fine. Now it appears that the torx bolt (from what...
